Day 6: Lemon Basil Whiskey Sours

This was supposed to be the Thirsty Thursday post. Better late than never, right? We went on an adventure to a county fair in north central Massachusetts today and created a "meatloaf," but those pictures will have to come tomorrow!

At any rate, I've been intrigued by the idea of using basil in sweet things since I saw the basil peach pie in Vegan Pie in the Sky. I've been a longtime fan of whiskey sours, and it occurred to me that basil might be an interesting addition. It actually came out really well!

Lemon Basil Whiskey Sours

Makes: 1 cocktail

Time: 2 minutes

1 part agave nectar
1 part lemon juice
2 parts whiskey
1 tablespoon chopped basil
